PurO3 Probiotic Suppositories
The benefit of using a suppository is that the total dosage of probiotics goes to the source of intestinal flora imbalance without having to be digested. When taken orally, anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 or more of the strains do not make it past the stomach acids. Suppositories are a solution to this problem.
Probiotic suppositories are used to help reestablish gut flora, help diminish vaginal yeast infections and bacterial infections of BV (bacterial vaginosis), and may help prevent recurring urinary tract infections.
Our intestines contain a rich supply of blood vessels that actively exchange substances, and mucous membranes that harbor vast communities of functional bacteria. Numerous studies have examined the complex mechanisms of the beneficial effects of probiotics. Bacteria help create a protective lining on the walls of the intestine by stimulating the production of mucus and regulating adherence by certain bacteria. This helps support a proper balance of microbiota in the gut. Antimicrobial peptides, or bacteriocins, are produced by these bacteria and establish competitive exclusion of pathogenic strains.
Probiotic strains and Usage
How to Use:
Use one suppository daily or as directed by your health care practitioner. To remove suppository, tear the plastic shell lengthwise beginning at the center perforation at the top (side view shown). Apply a lubricant if needed before insertion. Use as needed or as directed by your healthcare provider. For rectal use: Insert following a bowel movement. Insert past sphincter muscle. Sometimes after insertion you may have an urge to evacuate. Try to hold for 15 to 20 minutes if possible for best absorption of suppository. For vaginal use: Insert 2 to 4 inches when lying down, preferably at night. Remain in a flat position for at least 30 minutes for best absorption.
